Who we are

The Anthem is Georgetown University’s long-running literary magazine, publishing a bi-annual collection of the university community’s best poetry, short fiction, art, and photography. We solicit submissions from students, alumni, and faculty and review them weekly, providing feedback and helping to bring each piece closer to publication.

To find a copy of our latest edition, please stop by outside our office on the fourth floor of the Leavey Center when campus reopens, or click on the magazine on our front page to get a digital copy.

Join our editorial staff

If you are a Georgetown student, we are always accepting new editors. The Anthem is committed to keeping our editing process application free and open to the public. We meet Thursdays from 8pm to 9pm EDT over Zoom to go over the week’s submissions as a group. The weekly link to our meetings are sent out in our weekly emails, which you can subscribe to below. If you are interested in attending, please email our editor-in-chief, Brian McCrann, at anthem@georgetown.edu for more information.

Together, we suggest improvements and decide what we think should ultimately be part of the magazine. If you’re interested in submitting or editing, please sign up for our mailing list below. You can also find us at the CAB fair!
